The second Stroke Emergency Mobile (STEMO) starts in Berlin
The fully equipped second edition of the Stroke Emergency Mobile (STEMO) was deployed in April 2017 in the Accident Hospital (UKB) in Berlin. The STEMO 2 will enable rapid prehospital health care to achieve the better outcome in the eastern part of Germany’s capital. The enhanced technical development of the STEMO by MEYTEC focused especially on extending the stability and reliability of the complete solution. Technical specialists from MEYTEC provide also service and support for all medical devices, laboratory equipment and telemedicine systems including CT scanner, lab devices, teleradiological and server infrastructure. The prehospital health care model provides complete diagnostics for stroke allowing treatment to start on board of STEMO, before patients are transported to the nearest appropriate hospital, for better outcomes.
MEYDOC® – Videoconsultations between doctor and patient at home
The growing numbers of the digital devices and transmission media as well as the provision of wider bandwidths has increased the interest in video communication in medicine. Video communication between doctors and patients in their home environment is an important health care topic. To this end MEYTEC presents a new solution MEYDOC® , which can be operated by doctors on laptop and/or tablet PC and by patients at home using a tablet PC or Smartphone. The MEYDOC® solution meets the high data security requirements needed in the medical after care sector.
The feedback from users is positive, not least because of the excellent service and support provided by the MEYTEC’s specialists during the early adoption stage. For patients living in rural areas with insufficient broadband connectivity can be supplied with a mobile router to provide an adequate bandwidth for video communication.

VIMED® CAR 3 – a telemedicine communication hub for ambulance
MEYTEC developed a new generation of the telemedicine communication hub for ambulances named VIMED® CAR 3. Showed at the conhIT 2017 in Berlin, the communication hub is designed for easy integration into standard ambulances. The integrated VIMED® CAR 3 unit receives and processes digitalized diagnostic data from available POCT-devices and provides that data via a high available mobile network to the specialist hospital. VIMED® CAR 3 also provides a high quality video communication between the ambulance?s staff, patients on board and remote medical experts. The components of the VIMED® CAR 3 provide suitable interfaces for processing and storing medical information. For example, the VIMED® TELEMEDIZINAKTE solution fulfils the requirements of interoperability for interaction with other telemedicine systems
